Book Ho!

28 Jan

People, my mind is like: David

Yet another deadline looms.  My editor is looking at her watch and then checking her email for my lasted revision to the WIP.

But a woman can only edit so many hours a day! Still slowly chewing my way through 8 seasons of Dr. Who at lunchtime, but meanwhile, I miss all the erotic romance reading I was doing last fall.  Yes, like everyone else my Kindle is choc full of *stuff* but nothing that really calls to me.  Just a long bunch of freebies off Book Bub.

I mean, tell me– what drives you to actually pick something out on your Kindle and start reading?

Looking back to last fall, for me it was having someone I trust who likes intelligent heroines and good writing strongly recommend a book to me.  Those particular books — like FOR REAL, TELLING TALES, LIBERATING LACEY were the highlight of my fall.  Adriana Anders, my friend, recommended those books–Adriana is a good book ho.  If I have one New Year’s resolution this year, it’s to become a better book ho myself.

Meanwhile, I gotta start somewhere.  Right now, I just love looking for good romance covers and hoping that will lead me to a great juicy read. Here are some books that have recently come out which I was drawn to purely on the basis of their covers.  The blurb inside appealed to me as well.

This one is definitely a dark romance. I don't know why, but D.R. is my latest very guilty pleasure.

Only problem: it's book 4. That could be okay, or could be rehashing of books 1, 2, & 3. Hmmm. Other than that, I like the blurb.

Hey, it's Cecilia Tan! We had her on our blog -- very sexy cover.

Small town, wounded woman, hot carpenter guy. Could be really emotional sexy goodness.

I love a classy cover with a grunty title -- the blurb doesn't say there's rough sex in this -- but a girl can hope.
